Pictures of our Beautiful Daughter ,Victoria Faith

Its getting late, so we will start with these few pictures. As you know Linda and I went to Roseau last monday for an ultra sound. Our doctor wanted us to go to Fargo to see a specialist and get a better ultrasound, so that was schedualed for Wed. We took off on Tuesday, had the ultra sound on wed., were told the condition of our little daughter and decided that if they could do a c section that day or the next , we may as well go ahead with that. Victoria Faith was born Feb 10, 2010 at 3: 40 pm (around) . She is just beautiful. If she didn't have an extra large head, she would be just like any newborn. She has a condition called haloproscencephaly (spelling?). She only has a brain stem and a little tissue where normally there is a full brain. She is not expected to live long, but we are glad to be able to take care of her for Jesus until He decides He wants to take care of her. God's grace has been so sufficient for us these days, but of course the tears do flow. Do we know why? no, but we trust our heavenly father and are thankful that Jesus conquerored death for us. Is it hard? yes, so keep us in your prayers. Will try to send more pics tomorrow. Live for Jesus today, we never know how long we will live for.
